How would you like to have the chance to pitch your startup idea to two of the world’s most renowned entrepreneurs?

If you’re like most young entrepreneurs, you’re working on your unique business idea yet struggling to find a powerful investor that would get your business off the ground. You may be faced with people who don't "get it" or engage in "pay for play" for the chance to pitch angel investors.  Help is here!

To help you get on the road to securing some capital,  we are organizing Startups on a Global Stage  – a startup pitch workshop and competition that will help you get a step closer to achieving your dreams while providing you three extraordinary benefits:

  1. Polish your pitch!
  2. Help you make the most of your pitch, with exclusive live video feedback from Jason Cohen – successful startup founder and mentor
  3. Get you and your business exposed to Jason Calacanis - founder of Open Angel Forum and an investor himself

This same startup pitch competition is happening in dozens of cities worldwide and our local entrepreneurs have the amazing opportunity to put Puerto Rico on the global business map as the event is broadcast live on the This Week in Startups Global Meetup Show. The winner in each city gets to pitch Jason Calacanis live on the show. That could be you!

Be a part of the ‘Startups on a Global Stage’ and you’ll have your 1 minute to tell your story and captivate the world. Join us September 21st  at the Colegio de Ingenieros. Startups on a Global Stage is your ticket to global business recognition. Head to the the signup page as places are limited.
